Black Swan: Clothes Inspired by the Film

Graceful meets gothic in lacy looks plucked from this month's ballet thriller starring Natalie Portman.

In the highly anticipated film Black Swan, Natalie Portman stars as a dancer in the metaphorical dark. Fashion, on the other hand, has taken a more literal route. Outfitting dresses with prima ballerina plumes and noir gossamer tulle, designers like J. Mendel and Oscar de la Renta urge us to take center stage. Rounding out the look: jewel-encrusted headpieces and cuffs so illuminating, they'll have heads turning from the first champagne toast to the final curtain call.
